It seems that __RLIM_T_TYPE is ULONGWORD on all Linux platforms (it's SQUAD
on bsd4.4). And __RLIM64_T_TYPE is always UQUAD, so if you build with
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64, you'll get that for rlim_t.
Note that ((rlim_t) -1) is wrong for RLIM_INFINITY anyway; it would have to
be (((rlim_t) -1) >> 1), I think.
